Blank Verse: Why Doest Thou Linger

Poem By Caryl Ramsdale

Arise! Break fast m’lord dawn is nigh,
The dell awakens to the cockerel’s crow anon.
Durst thou hide, beneath thy tapestry,
Whilst I crumble to dust in my burial chamber?
Love of my life I beseech you come,
Be fain to meet me ere the church bell chimes at daybreak,
Forsooth there’s none to blame evermore.

There's a quiet place I go,
When I'm feeling kinda low;
I think back to yesterday,
To the life I used to know.

Feel God's love flow from heaven above,
Riding sunbeams it filters through trees;
Shimmering light mirrors water like glass,
One graceful, white swan swims peacefully.

Rhyme: Broken Hearts Cry Silently

Admire, cherish, value, prize
All who are put in your care;
Broken hearts cry silently
Sending out petition prayers.

Rhyme: Busy Making Memories

Claim my trinkets and treasures,
Ignore my identity;
Denounce any connections,
But don't take one memory.

Rhyme: Angels In The Air

Someone knocked on the stormdoor,
Knocked one knock, then knocked again;
When I opened it slightly,
Two strangers asked to come in.
